ASCIISUM()
 Finds the sum of the ASCII values of all the characters of a string
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Syntax

     ASCIISUM(<cString>) --> nASCIISum

 Argument

     <cString>  Designates the character string for which the sum of all
     the ASCII values is computed.

 Returns

     ASCIISUM() returns a number that corresponds to the sum of the ASCII
     codes of all the characters in <cString>.

 Description

     ASCIISUM() allows you to form simple checksums for character strings.
     For example, this can be implemented during remote data transmission to
     identify transmission errors.

 Note

       This function does not take character position into account,
        so it cannot determine a character transposition.  The CHECKSUM()
        function should be used to determine character transposition.

 Examples

       Transposed characters yield identical results:

        ? ASCIISUM("abc")          // Result: 294
        ? ASCIISUM("cba")          // Result: 294

       A null string returns 0:

        ? ASCIISUM("")             // Result: 0
